Law and War in Rural Kenya| 1hr : 04mins
Director: Suzette Heald | Producer: Suzette Heald
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: United Kingdom
In 1998, a new movement swept through Kuria District in Kenya with dramatic consequences. Cattle raiding fuelled by guns had led to a situation of total insecurity, with all in fear of the thieves. In April of that year, a group of men in just one location established a new organization merging ideas from the Tanzanian vigilante movement, sungusungu, with their own indigenous assembly, the iritongo. Within a year, the movement had spread throughout Kuria and the District as a whole was at peace. This film tells the story of its origin and the dilemmas it faced ten years on.
